David went to his second interview today. He said it went really well and they told him they'd let him know something soon. They have to go through the la-ti-da and interview everybody who applied. Some of them are not already working for the company and David was told that they probably wouldn't hire someone from outside the company. I'm so anxious for David to find out. Hopefully he'll hear something next week.
We're leaving for Statesville after my 12:30 class on Thursday. We'll be super busy with all of Robert & Kate's wedding festivities. I hope I have enough nice dresses (that fit!) for all the luncheons and brunches. I can't believe my little brothers are all grown up and married! They make me feel old. :) I'm VERY proud of both of them and all they've accomplished this past year. Ok, I have to quit now before I cry on the keyboard and it shorts out.
I'm going to go find something healthy to eat for dinner. Becky, I'm ready for that menu anytime! ;) haha

Other than that, things are pretty much the same. Work and school....and naps. Love having a reason to nap now! :) haha
I can't wait for Friday. I am dreading tomorrow's classes and just want the week to be over already.

I wanted to update and let everybody know that they moved David's interview to Monday (instead of Friday). I knew they would as soon as I posted it! ;) We're excited about the prospect of him getting a promotion (better pay, better hours, etc).
I have to go to work at 5 and I'm exhausted! I didn't get a nap today because I had to run errands between classes and work. Speaking of classes.....I mentioned how I thought my nutrition teacher was crazy....and nobody believed me. Today we had a test. We had to use HER calculator and HER pencils! She wouldn't even let us use our own pencils!!!! She's psycho I tell ya'! ANDDDD the class is from 12:30 to 1:50. She wrote this on the board: "12:30 - 1:20 Test 1:20 - 1:30 Break 1:30-1:50 Test review" She did let us look at the test and see what we missed and let us highlight in our book or student resource manual anything we wanted, but we had to use HER highlighters! I don't know how she ever became the dept. chair.
We have our first baby doctor appointment on Sept 22nd! If anybody has any good books or sources of info that they really liked during their pregnancy, I'd love to read it. I went to Barnes & Noble today but was a little overwhelmed with the choices! I have "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" and it has lots of good info in it. I'm mostly looking for a list of good foods to eat (common sense, I know) and foods to stay away from. Mom already forbade me from eating processed meats. :)
Alright, I have to go get ready for stupid work now. So. Tired.

Just a few weeks along and we had initially wanted to wait the standard 3 months to tell everyone but everyone knew we'd had the incemination done and are waiting for a yes or no! (Especially our family and friends)
So, it's a YES!! yay! Praise the Lord. Once again, the power of prayer is proved.
Our due date is May 20th (or so). It doesn't seem real yet and we're very excited.
Thanks to everyone who prayed (are praying) for us. Thanks to my friends who let me cry on their shoulders when things weren't going the way we had planned. Thanks for waiting for God's perfect plan with us. We love you!

On the way home, David spotted a kitten by the side of the road. We pulled over and rescued her. I couldn't believe she hadn't been hit or anything. I had some bread left over from our picnic and she ate it before we could get to the vet's office! She was a hungry baby...and LOUD!! She couldn't be more than a few weeks old and already has the meow thing down pat! My friend Sandy adopted her. :)
Looking forward to Friday....for lots of reasons!
